Evon Lee, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Psychology and Psychiatry and Psychological Assessment Coordinator, will present her lecture "'Non-Gold Standards' of ASD" on Tuesday, Nov. 27, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in Room 241 of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center/One Magnolia Circle Building as part of the Participant Recruitment and Assessment Core E Training Series.
The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) and the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-Second Edition (ADOS-2) are routinely characterized as the gold standards in assessment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), especially for research projects. However, other measures are widely used, particularly in clinical and school settings where access to the resources required for receiving training and establishing reliability on the ADI-R and ADOS-2 are not readily available. This session will include a brief introduction to three popular instruments for screening and assessment of ASD that have recently been re-normed. Clinicians and researchers are welcome, and group discussion about audience members' personal experiences with these measures will be encouraged. Refreshments will be served. Please register for this event by Monday, Nov. 26.
